Used sock seller shares daily routine including gym workout

A man is making a whopping £1,600 a month – by selling his socks online.

Billy-Joe Gray, 25, runs an OnlyFans page with his fiancee and had no idea there was a market for used socks until someone messaged the page about it.

Now, he sells worn socks for between £10 and £30 a pair, and he sells up to 12 pairs a week – which adds up to £360.

He claims to wear the socks for days at a time before mailing them off in zip-lock bags, and even takes customers’ requests into consideration – for an extra charge.

What do you think about buying socks online? Let us know in the comments…

Despite his highly-unusual choice of career, Billy-Joe says he is open about his job to friends and family, who are supportive of his endeavour.

One clip in which Billy-Joe takes viewers through his gym routine in order to generate enough moisture for his socks has racked up more than 80,000 views on TikTok, as viewers are left in shock at his unusual job choice.

Billy-Joe, from Chelsea, London, said: “I started OnlyFans just over a year ago and through OnlyFans, you get requests for items of clothing, whether that be socks, boxers or gym tops.

“A lot of guys had interest in it, because I have massive support from the LGBTQ+ community. They’re like my main audience.

“They help support my page and I do videos and content for them on my website as well as through TikTok and Instagram.

“I have a lot of Americans who buy my used underwear and my used socks and keep them for their own enjoyment.

“I get regular buyers who will buy used socks all the time. I’ll go to the gym on specific days for them and wear them over the course of one to three days for them.

“We’ll then talk about a price and how much they’d be happy to pay. It’s on an individual basis how much they sell for.

“Social media is so big and wide. It can take one video going viral on TikTok and getting thousands of views, and from that, you’ll have loads of people wanting to buy your socks.

“If I can sell my used socks for £10, £20 or £30 a time, I will.

“The sweatier and more stenched they are, the better. I’ll go running and stuff, and put them in a zip lock bag, and then put them in discreet packaging – in case they live at home with their parents, their husband or wife.

“My sales all come through Instagram. Americans love buying white Nike socks. I’ve found that my TikTok branches out more to them than it does to people in the UK.”
